Fishing Conditions: GREAT
Fishing Trip Date:Friday, Jul 27, 2012
Quote(s) of the Day: "That is a lot of fish for this rod to handle."
"I wish the day was longer so we could fish more!"
"This is Colorado fly fishing for Rocky Mountain trout at its best!"
Fishing Highlights:The fish ate consistently all day. A lot of really big fish lurking in the depths, but they managed to stay away from the net today. Jay swung a beautiful 21 inch rainbow into the net just before lunch and Jeff was hot on the browns in the afternoon. Today was all about the dry drop rig. All the fish seemed to want the dry drowned just below the surface. It was an amazing day!We had a great day on the water and the dry fly fishing was great. Watching fish rise to dry flies in pocket water really made the day.
The fishing is great. Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Slightly Off.
